GaiaLens' development was motivated by the challenges of using traditional approaches in assessing whether a company is
environmentally and socially responsible or not. This is known as ESG investing (Environmental, Social and Governance).
GaiaLens takes advantage of the vast data resources now available and uses machine learning to make better judgements about the environmental and social credential of companies.
We saw the power of machine learning as being able to interpret and draw deeper inference from millions of articles, across thousands of sources, relating to tens of thousands of companies.
